Every 25 - 30 years, a book is written, that could change American Society. I just finished reading such a book. The book is "The Price Of Civilization" by Jeffrey Sachs. The first sentence grabbed me: "At the root of America's economic crisis lies a moral crisis: the decline of civic virtue among America's political and economic elite." Professor Sachs' vast experience, in International Economics, and helping other countries solve their economic problems, gave him the insight to diagnose, and provide solutions to America's current crisis of confidence in its institutions.

Jeffrey Sachs is one of the most brilliant and experienced economic minds in the country. His newest novel draws on his years of experience working with foreign governments, and really drives to the heart of what we are experiencing in America today - "a moral crisis". I love how he uses facts from actual surveys to show that the American people are more aligned than the media presents on issues. His material is well researched, he presents his arguments soundly and - SURPRISE - without making it boring and unreachable. Anyone could read this book and understand exactly what his stance is. A must read for everyone in this country, but especially the politicians and businesses that are driving our country down a dangerous path.

Every American, indeed every citizen of the world interested in advancing justice, compassion and prosperity with sustainability for future generations, should read and share as broadly as possible the author's informed ideas. Most importantly, please answer this clear, urgent, and lucidly expressed clarion call to action I believe the author is again due our collective thanks!

Important information! I wish our society could see with the clarity of Mr. Sachs and act accordingly.

I say "an economist" because this book treats most moral and tricky areas of American society from the lens of an economist, which may not be the best view of the situation. It does, however, help to see the facts behind various divides, especially the income gap in this country, something tailored to the talents of Sachs. At times a basic economics lesson, at times a political call to arms, this book adequately describes most of what is wrong with the country, while providing some provocative, if not very useful, solutions.

Macro economics can be confusing to say the least Jeffery Sacks explains the % of GDP as it relates to previous years and decades. If his solution suggestions were followed we The U.S. could climb out of the hole we've dug ourselves. No more blame game. If we don't have a workable solution, then we're making the problem worse.. A true solution path.

This is a great accompaniment to the other piece I am reading by Howard Zinn.
